A History of Dance & a few other recent finds

I was very excited when I openned this beauty case as there was someones dancing shoes from tiny tot ballet to grown up tap. Although not the greatest value find was definitely my favourite find this week.
Some bits and bobs.... such a cute child size folding chair.

Pair of LOVE seats.
Ornate garden setting, great to have four chairs.

I can imagine these on a wall, they are timber and metal.
Hope you are having a good start to the weekend. It is very windy here in Brisvegas today.

    Grown up tap...that's me!!! I learnt tap as a child.. was always tapping away... couldn't keep those feet still...Often think I should again now..

    Wonderful find .. but sort of sad in a way... all those memories lost... I wonder who owned them..

    Well it is cold and blowing a gale here today.. crazy weather this week.. one day was quite hot... go figure... Have a lovely weekend.. wind and all. xxx Julie

  8. Hi Katherine, I am not too sure if you take request for looking for items but I am wondering if you have come across any cast iron small garden side tables. The sort you can pop a cup of tea on or some plant pots? In the meantime I will keep an eye on your ebay store. Have a great weekend, Lisa

  12. You're right Katherine, those shoes could tell a hundred stories, so sweet (unusual these days)to see them treasured and kept for a lifetime. I throw so much paper craft away of the kids, but this got me thinking as to which items I will hold onto as future mementos.
